Matthew Henry's 1 Corinthians Chapter 5 Bible commentary...
The apostle blames the Corinthians for connivance at an incestuous person; (1-8) and directs their behaviour towards those guilty of scandalous crimes. (9-13)1-8 The apostle notices a flagrant abuse, winked at by the Corinthians. Party spirit, and a false notion of Christian liberty, seem to have saved the offender from censure. Grievous indeed is it that crimes should sometimes be committed by professors of the gospel, of which even heathens would be ashamed. Spiritual pride and false doctrines tend to bring in, and to spread such scandals. How dreadful the effects of sin! The devil reigns where Christ does not. And a man is in his kingdom, and under his power, when not in Christ. The bad example of a man of influence is very mischievous; it spreads far and wide. Corrupt principles and examples, if not corrected, would hurt the whole church. Believers must have new hearts, and lead new lives. Their common conversation and religious deeds must be holy. So far is the sacrifice of Christ our Passover for us, from rendering personal and public holiness unnecessary, that it furnishes powerful reasons and motives for it. Without holiness we can neither live by faith in him, nor join in his ordinances with comfort and profit.
9-13 Christians are to avoid familiar converse with all who disgrace the Christian name. Such are only fit companions for their brethren in sin, and to such company they should be left, whenever it is possible to do so. Alas, that there are many called Christians, whose conversation is more dangerous than that of heathens!

This also is in tune with what we let influence is. Everything we see, hear, even touch has a great influence on what we think of next. The more a "little" bad influence pulls us away from the"truth",the less we recognize what bad influence is and what it can do to us as Christians.

A little evil goes a long way and has a great influence on those who are ignorant of God's Word.

prayer of beliver is power enough to save any sinner. 1cor 5:5 deliver such people for the destruction of flesh, it may be related to 1 john 5:16-17 do not pray for those whose sins is unto death.2cor 5:1 if the flesh is destroy we have an enternal one in heaven.

when we get ourselves into sins that are considered small, we might not know when we get deeply rooted in it which will eventually lead to destruction.

I have love these scriptures especially verse 13 “But them that are without God judgeth. Therefore put away from among yourselves that wicked person.” Again the bible in 1 Corinthians 3:16 says Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you? Apostle Paul is encouraging the temples of the Holy Ghost (you and I) to check yourselves and get out those wicked behaviors and habits that you are still practicing even after confessing that Jesus is My Lord and saviour and put them away from the temple which the holy spirit dwells. So brethren, before chasing any brethren first look through yourself and let go those wicked habits and then the name of the Lord will be Glorified in the mighty name of Jesus. JESUS IS LORD AND GOD IS LOVE. God bless.

Verse 13 "Therefore put away from among yourselves that wicked person." The purpose of discipline “is to maintain standards to a watching world Mathew 5:13-16”. Keep sin from spreading throughout the church 1 Corinthians 5:6-7 Help the person find his way back to God 2 Corinthians 2:6-8. It is to escape God’s two fold judgment upon habitually sinning saints. 1 Corinthians 11:30 deals with Sickness; and 1 Corinthians 11:30 deals with Physical death. We are to view the individual as an erring brother and not a bitter enemy. 2 Thessalonians 3:15 “Yet count him not as an enemy, but admonish him as a brother.” We are to approach him with sorrow and not sarcasm, 1 Corinthians 5:2. We are to be ready to forgive him when repentance occurs, 2 Corinthians 2:7.

The main thing here is not to base your ministry on man’s teaching. We test the spirits with the written word, not just John 4:1. Every topic has to be tested with the written word under its own topic to get a clear test on. Far too many will hear a teaching on a topic and go by it, rather than going by what the word states. Matthew 6 is a good example; we hear about all the prosperity teachings, on how much someone gave and what he got in return. The scripture tells us not to advertise. That is a ploy to entice people to give more. Not sparing the flock, these people get robbed in the name of the Lord, for trusting in man’s teaching.
